Socks, Old Saw mill and Petroglyphs

I cast on these socks in the beginning of June when we had some great warm summer weather. Now all the pretty wildflowers are in bloom and matches my Fabel yarn leftovers socks perfectly :)

We went on a small road trip the other day and visited an old saw mill from 1796 - Aursfjordsaga.

Lots of beautiful hand craft!

We also stopped by a rock carving site or petroglyphs at Tennes. The oldest ones here are 7000 years old.

Some of the carvings was hard to see because they have decided to stop painting them red, so many of them had faded a lot or had no paint left.

  5. Nydelige sokker. Og dere har altså vært på tur midt i nabolaget mitt til to plasser som jeg aldri har fått somlet meg til å besøke. Så nå ble jeg veldig inspirert. Har du funnet noe info på nettet om når saga er åpen? Eller må man bare dra på lykke og fromme?

    1. Takk :)
      Er kjekt å oppdage at det finnes små perler man kan besøke i nærområdet.
      Nå om sommeren er saga åpen på torsdager og da vi var der var det mulig å kjøpe seg kaffe og vafler :)
